Event description


NOTE: Bootcamp Prep is a course for people who already have some familiarity with code and want to take their skills to the next level. It covers the intermediate programming concepts you’ll need to pass the Fullstack and Grace Hopper Program assessments.

Before signing up, please complete this practice test to make sure the program is right for you. A score of 6-13 qualifies you to move forward and sign up for this course.

Why Bootcamp Prep?

Whether you’re trying to get into a coding bootcamp or just learning JavaScript on your own, this Fullstack Academy Bootcamp Prep In a Week course is exactly what you’re looking for--especially since it’s taught all online via one of our video classrooms, which means no additional commute for you.

Students who take it are 2.5 times more likely to get into a rigorous coding bootcamp like Fullstack Academy or the all-women’s Grace Hopper Program than those who don’t.

What’s more, Bootcamp Prep In a Week culminates in a special a risk-free assessment offered only to Bootcamp Prep students.

If you pass, you may submit that assessment to our Admissions department as your official Fullstack Academy or Grace Hopper Program assessment and skip straight to the next phase of the admissions process (the technical interview). If you don’t pass, you won’t be penalized in any way. All applicants have two chances to pass our admissions process, and the risk-free assessment does not count as one of those chances.

How It Works

Bootcamp Prep In a Week classes are held live via our video classrooms over the course of a single week. The schedule is as follows:

• Opening weekend // Saturday & Sunday, 10am - 5pm ET

• Weekday evenings // Monday - Thursday, 6:40pm - 9:40pm ET

• Closing weekend // Saturday & Sunday, 10am - 5pm ET

Any classes that fall on holidays will be rescheduled.

Attendance is taken daily via our learning management system. The course requires 10 hours of self-paced pre-work and delivers a total of 36 hours of classroom work over 8 live class meetings. A link to the risk-free assessment is sent to students following the final class meeting of the course.

What You’ll Learn

The JavaScript-oriented Bootcamp Prep In a Week course is taught by Fullstack Academy and Grace Hopper Program graduates now working full-time as developers, who can share their experiences and will give you a feel for the vibe here.

The curriculum for Bootcamp Prep includes lectures, workshops, pair programming, coding challenges, and a culminating project--many of the same elements you’ll find in our immersive programs, which is why Bootcamp Prep is great practice for ultimately enrolling in a coding bootcamp.

Along the way, you’ll explore the following JavaScript concepts:

  • Nested loops

  • Nested conditional statements

  • Test specs (Jasmine)

  • Objects

  • API’s

  • JSON

  • How the web works

  • The call stack

  • Recursion

  • Functions

  • Scope

What to Know Beforehand

Bootcamp Prep In a Week is a great option for those who are already comfortable with the fundamentals of JavaScript but want to take a refresher course before applying to a coding bootcamp. If you consider yourself a beginner (for example, if you’ve never written any code before), Bootcamp Prep is not for you.

Once you sign up for Bootcamp Prep, you’ll receive access to about 10 hours of pre-work, so you can get familiar with the coding concepts we’ll touch on before you jump into class. **All students must complete this pre-work in order to succeed in class.** If you realize the pre-work is too difficult, you may request a refund until 24 hours before class starts.

Finally, you’ll need a laptop (Mac is preferred, but Windows is fine) and a stable wi-fi connection to be successful in this course, as video lectures, pair programming, and one-on-one conferences require a lot of bandwidth.

And that’s Bootcamp Prep In a Week! Ready? Sign up today, and we’ll see you in class. (Or send an email to bootcampprep@fullstackacademy.com with any lingering questions.)
